Has anyone gotten the EyeToy to work with their PC?

From another message board...
How to get your EyeToy working as a webcam; - Thanks to Five5v for telling me about this
Use drop down boxes to locate drivers for;
D-Link DSB-C310 (Rev B1)
Download driver from D-Link
Unzip to a folder
Go to folder, locate OV519.inf,
Right click file,
Properties>Untick 'Read Only'
Open OV519.inf in Notepad
Select 'Replace All'
Then, plug your Eye Toy into the USB port, wait for it to be recognised and
install the drivers' in the normal way using the Have Disk option at the
prompt and the modified OV519.inf file.
(double check which drivers you're installing as my Win2k attempted
to install its own driver)
During the installation, you'll get a system box with ???? in it...this is
the 50Hz/60Hz option setting. I set it to 50Hz for now.
The software to view the webcam output is included in the driver pack...
AMCAP.EXE, Options>Tick Preview
You should now get a picture of whatever your EyeToy is pointed at.
And more details here:

Okay, I got it working. The reason why some people are having trouble with it may be that there are two different product ID #'s, so the changes to the .inf won't apply to all EyeToys. Go to this site: http://www.ionstorm.co.uk/files/sairuk/index.shtml
